Bollywood luminary Alia Bhatt has recently found herself entangled in a web of controversy following her high-profile appearance at the 2024 Met Gala.

For the unaware, a growing roster of celebrities, including Taylor Swift, Nick Jonas, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, and upwards of a hundred others, has been added to the Blockout 2024 list. This compilation, steadily expanding by the day, is disseminated across social media platforms, accompanied by links to the handles of celebrities who attended high-profile events yet remained conspicuously silent on the pressing humanitarian crisis.

The fallout from the Met Gala has underscored the power and responsibility wielded by public figures in the digital age. In an era where social media amplifies voices and magnifies accountability, celebrities are under increasing pressure to utilise their platforms for social justice causes. For Alia Bhatt and others ensnared in the Blockout 2024 movement, the repercussions of their perceived silence are a stark reminder of the expectations placed upon those in the public eye.
